2017 Bangers racing is starting to take off! Back at the end of January, Mark Hagopian ran the Resolution Run to Kick Cancer 5k in Lexington, and Kerry Phelan raced her first 15k at The Great Stew Chase in Peabody. And last weekend on Superbowl Sunday, Jackie Crain, Mark Hagopian, Mark Zurlo, Declan Healy, Em Grover, Sierra Parker, Patrick McMahon, Justin Voldman, and Jamie Lightfoot pre-gamed football with the Super Sunday 5-miler in Cambridge!
The next Grand Prix race coming up is HYANNIS on Sunday, February 26! At least 8 Bangers are already going. There is still time to sign up and you can pick your distance - 10K, half marathon, full marathon, and 4-person full marathon relay. This fills up so sign up soon!
We have 23 of the 25 runners needed for our VIP beer tent at the Craicfest 5k, our March Grand Prix race! It's on Sunday, 3/12, and is in fact pronounced "crack-fest." Sign up soon to get us to 25!!! You can also check out the team list and our beer tent status here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1r3HnW7K8JiRgdL-vJGZOIKZWpLjCPrceySjMYs2KzuY/edit#gid=0
Our April race is the Run for the Troops 5k in Andover, MA. We have a FREE bus transporting us to and from this event (thanks Kerry Phelan), and if we get 25 runners to sign up, we will get race shirts with the Bangers team name on the sleeve!
And also in April, we have nine Bangers running the Boston Marathon, eight of whom are fundraising! Check out the list here to support your fellow runners and some great charities - http://bit.ly/bangersrunboston
